Description of the project mmx:
Mmx project is my musical project born in 2008, which offers a mixed genre of electronic music, usually the performance starts with an Ambient concert and Deepblue, played with ableton live sometimes accompanied by an electric guitar or more instruments and microphones. In the second part the music evolves through a very simple controller midi-mixer in a set that can vary from Electro and Electronics up to Tecno according to the type of the evening. This second part consists of mixing personal pieces with music by other artists freely available. This project was born in Bari, from the idea of some different Djs and Producers and was then exported to Rome.
